T-Mobile USA will offer the iPhone on its network at long last.

The company announced the news at its “Uncarrier” event in New York today. T-Mobile will begin selling the iPhone 5 on Friday, April 12. The new iPhone 5 will be available for a $99.99 down payment. T-Mobile will also offer the iPhone 5 without a contract. And it will operate on T-Mobile’s new LTE network, which it also announced today.

CNET reported Monday that an iPhone announcement was expected. T-Mobile is the last of the major carriers to get the iPhone on its network. And the company is hoping that adding the iPhone will help it anchor customers to its service.

For years, T-Mobile has steadily been losing customers as its much bigger rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless have gained new customers. T-Mobile hopes that by offering the iPhone , it can stem some of the defections.
